Property Description

The Jaca Hostel is a small Hostel in the quiet village of Porto Da Cruz on Madeira Island. Before, it was a family home, coming from the nineteenth century, which after being remodelled became a cosy place that mixes the blue of the sea, the surf and the waves with the green of the mountains, the trails and the levadas. The name Jaca is original of a regionalism of the island of Madeira that means small crab.

This property is 1 minute walk from the beach. Located in Porto da Cruz, Jaca Hostel offers a garden, terrace and shared lounge. Free WiFi is included.

Best hostel I've ever stayed in, and by far the best hostel on Madeira Island. Porto da Cruz is a great surfing village and has a really unique and cool vibe. The hostel is a perfect fit to this surfing vibe and is the beating heart of the village. The pizza and burger nights are the best way to meet all the others in the hostel and makes you feel home and welcome straight away (the manager of the hostel worked as a professional cook, so the food is top-notch as well. All the staff are superfriendly and hel

Great hostel, great location, we met wonderful fellow travellers. The hostel has a good kitchen & common area and is very social. It turns into a bit of a party hostel on Fridays and Mondays when the hostel staff have Pizza and Hamburger night and open the place to the community. These nights are an obvious money-maker for the business and pretty much take over the kitchen and common areas. At €20 for pizza, prices feel a bit exploitive of residents. OTW score would be 11/10.

Jaca hostel is a very pretty, spacious, well maintained hostel. It is situated perfectly in the small town of Porto da Cruz . This hostel is not staffed all the time. The owner is only here for one hour a day. She is lovely and willing to help with you with any issues but the rest of the time the time the place is not staffed and for this reason seems a little lacking in hospitality. Note. Best book car to get around from this location difficult to make tours from here
